Personal Shopper: Foot-Friendly Sandal for Injured Nancy

Nancy writes: "Today I went to the doctor for a swollen ankle and found out I'm going to be in a walking boot for at least four to six weeks. My dilemma is I need a shoe to wear on my non-injured foot and the walking boot has a platform that's about one inch. Most of my sandals are very flat, so those aren't going to work because then I'm walking lopsided which could lead to further injury. Of course I can't wear any of my cute high heels either, so I have a real dilemma. Do you have any recommendations for cute shoes preferably sandals I can wear to compensate for my knee high walking boot?"

Jane here. As a fellow size-10-wearing lady with her own collection of knee and foot problems, I more than feel your pain. I've picked a range of cute options for your perusal, and have also tried to stick to brands with a good reputation for comfort and support - since after all, the lack thereof is probably part of what got us here in the first place.

1. Clarks Tiffani Molly ($83)
2. Kalso Earth Shoe Enrapture ($109)
3. Naturalizer Odilee ($56)
4. Haflinger Natalie ($86)
5. Dansko Volley Red Palm Frond Clog ($40)
6. Alegria Verona Ocean Opal Snake Sandal($100)

There's nothing wrong with either of my feet, but the dark, rich leather of #3 is super gorgeous. Get well soon, Nancy! :-)

Oh man, where was this post 4 weeks ago? I just got my stupid boot off, but now I have to wear super supportive shoes, which rules out most anything cute anyway. Good luck, Nancy!!!
